French Breakfast Radish is an heirloom, open-pollinated radish variety that was imported from France. This radish variety is slightly milder than most round varieties and has a texture that is firm and crisp. These radishes are elongated and have a red body with a white tip. Radishes average 3 inches long and grow pretty fast. For longer, straighter radishes, plant seeds thicker along the bed. Due to the mild flavor, French Breakfast Radish is a great variety for dips, salads and snacking.

Radishes perform best when direct seeded with a walk-behind planter like our Hoss Garden Seeder. We recommend using a modified #1 plate or #2 plate with holes drilled to the appropriate size for the seed being used. Seed size can vary from one variety to the next, so seed plate hole size should always be calibrated to fit the seed being used. Radishes perform well when planted on double rows or on a “bed” with several rows planted closely together. This allows for maximization of garden space and the tops will help to shade any new weed development between closely planted rows.

Radishes grow best in cooler weather and should be planted in early spring or fall when temperatures have cooled. They prefer well-drained soil and will tend to split if soil conditions remain saturated for long periods of time. Radishes should be harvested at the ideal size for each variety. If allowed to get too large, they will become pithy and not as palatable. Once harvested, tops should be removed for optimal storage. Radishes with tops removed will store in the fridge for up to two weeks.

    I’ve never been a huge radish fan, but these changed my mind! They are beautiful sliced thin in a salad! Quick maturity as well, which means a lot of succession plantings per season!
